The children — Kim, Krystal, Kari and Kirby — are quite the scenesters, but their parents, Myrna and Bob Schlegel, are the ones who bred the beauts and built a family of successful entrepreneurs. And we give credit where it’s due.

The Dallas duo opened their Preston Hollow home to more than 100 supporters to kick off the Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show, one of the biggest fundraising events for the North Texas Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

While guests sipped on cocktails and noshed on brisket sliders, curry chicken and vegetarian spring rolls, co-chair Maggie Kipp shared her heartfelt appreciation for Schlegels’ generosity and praised them as 2013 honorary chairs. Underwriting chair and Leukemia survivor Lynda Villarreal and host committee member Dawn Mellon also spoke about the importance of supporting the charitable cause.

Crawford Brock (Stanley Korshak is the sponsor of the fashion show featuring designs by Monique Lhuillier) was in attendance, alongside DeeDee Lee, Natalie Fogiel, Gigi Potter Salley, Angela Nash, Rusty Duvall, Jayne Chobot, Teffy Jacobs, Jon MellonCary Deuber and many more devotees looking forward to the February 12, 2013 event at the Meyerson Symphony Center
